publican opponent.
Rep. Paul Findley (R-Ill) voiced. the sole objection needed to pre-

For Grants
WASHINGTON--Congress has
finally settled on a 20 per cent

The actions were taken by
House-Senate conference commit-

partment grants, the House had
recommended raising the ceiling
to 25 per cent; the Senate backed
the 20 per cent status quo. The
HEW situation was just the oppo-
site: the Senate had proposed a 25
per cent limit; the House wanted
to stick with 20 per cent.
Indirect costs include all ex-
penses of running a research proj-
ect beyond the direct outlays for
labor and supplies. They include
expenses such as building main,

In Special Meeting
United States, the Soviet Union
and 15 other' nations yesterday
proposed a ban on placing weap-
ons of mass destruction in orbit
in outer space.
They submitted a resolution to
the General Assembly's main poli-
tical ccmmittee which called a spe-
cial meeting for this morning to
give the resolution quick approval.
The proposal is the result of the
recent declarations of President
John F. Kennedy and Soviet For-
eign Minister Andrei Gromyko and
subsequent talks between Gromy-
ko and-Secretary of State Dean
Formalizes Earlier Agreement
While the resolution is not bind-
ing, it does formalize an agreement
in principle previously announced
by the Soviet Union and the Unit-
ed States.
. Joining the two big powers in
'ponsoring the proposal were the
other members of the 18-nation
Geneva Disarmament Commission.
France has boycotted the commis-

consultations that led to the reso-
The resolution "welcomes the
expressions of the United States
and the Soviet Union of their in-

France and Communist China
have not signed it.
She appealed to the United Na-

dissident countries to join the pact.
She assailed Peking's hostility

To Toss in Hat
Secretary 'of State James M.

Hare said Yesterday that he is not
a Democratic candidate for gover-

re-election as secretary of state.
He listed three men as major
candidates for the Democratic
nomination but excluded himself.
The three are: Congressman-at-
Large Neil Staebler, Highway
Commissioner John C. Mackie, and
former Governor John B. Swain-
son. Hare was defeated in the 1960
Democratic primary by Swainson.
Democratic State Chairman Zol-

Hare's list. "I am surprised Hare
counted himself out," he said.

Senate Hits
Stormy Note
On Tax Bill
WASHINGTON (P)-Public Sen-
ate hearings on the big tax cut bill
began yesterday on a stormy note
with senators protesting that sup-
porters of the measure are trying
to rush them into"action with
"pressure propaganda."
Sen. Albert Gore (D-Tenn) said
it looks like an official of the
Democratic National Committee is
attempting to purge him in his
home state because of his opposi-
The outbursts came as Secre-
tary of the Treasury Douglas Dil-
lon led off the administration's ef-
fort to persuade the Senate Fi-
nance Committee to approve the
$11-billion reduction this year.
Includes Graphs, Charts'
Dillon's bulky prepared state-
ment was peppered with charts
and graphs to back up his argu-
ments. He underwent stiff ques-
tioning from the senators, includ-
ing a lengthy quizzing by Chair-
man Harry F. Byrd (D-Va).
Byrd, who opposes the tax cut
unless there are balancing slashes
in federal spending, sought to be-
little the amount of the tax saving
in the bill.
He said the average for all in-
dividual taxpayers would be $110-
a-year, or $2-a-week and that the
taxpayer with less than $3000 in-'
come would receive only $49 a

Foreign Relations Committee voted

of Congress in withholding aid

Rome Votes
News Rituals
can Ecumenical Council voted
overwhelmingly yesterday to mod-
ernize the sacraments of the Ro-
man Catholic Church.
The more than 2000 prelates as-
sembled in St. Peter's Basilica
from around the world voted to:
-Allow regional bishops' con-
ferences to authorize local lan-
guages in the rituals for admin-
istering baptism, confirmation,
penance, extreme unction, holy or-
ders and matrimony. Latin would
be retained only for the few essen-
tial words actually conferring the
sacraments (2,133 votes to 19).
Change in Name
-Change the name of extreme
(last) unction to "anointing of
the sick" to show it is for all the
seriously ill and not only for the
dying (2,143 votes to 35).
-Allow the baptism formula to
be said en masse, instead of in-
dividually, when large numbers are
being baptized together (2,058
votes to 42).
-Clarify the difference between
sacraments, which are believed to
give grace, and sacramentals,
which are outward signs of spirit-
uality such as holy water and
blessings (2,224 votes to 12).
Amends Schema
All four measures are amend-
ments to the third chapter of
a scheme (topic) on liturgy, or
public worship. The Council fath-
ers voter either yes or no. The en-
tire chapter comes to a vote next
week, when a third kind of vote
-yes but with reservations-will
be allowed.
The three categories of ballot-
ing were used Monday in the
Council vote on the schema's sec-
ond chapter on the mass.
The chapter gives regional con-
ferences of bishops a broad range
of permission to replace Latin with
the vernacular languages in much
of the mass, alter the mass struc-
ture to make it mean more to
worshipers, put new emphasis on
sermon preaching, distribute com-
munion on special occasions in the
form of bread and wine, instead of
bread alone, plus other chapters.
The chapter on the mass got
2,198 favorable votes and only 36
votes against. But the favaroble
votes -included 781 Council fathers
who marked their ballots "placet
juxta modem"--yes but with res-

ment of South Viet Nam, in the
discretion of the President, to fur-
ther the objectives of victory in
the war against Communism and
the return to their homeland of
Americans involved in that strug-

Dillon replied that while it might

have an important effect.

Leader Quits
In Germany
BONN (R) - Konrad Adenauer
ended an era as West Germany's
chancellor yesterday.
As he bowed out, parliament de-
clared that he "has earned the
gratitude of the Fatherland."
Adenauer then addressed the
Bundestag for the last time as
chancellor, urging his fellow coun-
trymen to remain true to their
Western allies.
Only with the help of friends
abroad, he declared solemnly, can
the dream of a reunited Germany
be realized. It was a dream he was
unable to make a reality through
the 14 years that he worked to re-
build his nation from the ashes of
Hitler's defeat.
For the first time since the end
of World War II, West Germany
will have another chancellor. The
Bundestag will elect Economics
Minister Ludwig Erhard today, an-
other builder of postwar Germany,
to the chancellorship.
Erhard was the choice of the
Christian Democratic Party, not
Adenauer. The chancellor felt that
Erhard. who brought about West
Germany's economic recovery, was
too green in international politics.
After reminding the packed
chamber of Germany's disgrace in
the early postwar years, Adenauer
said: 'We can hold our heads high
because we have entered the ranks
of the free nations and become one
of them."
He said that without its allies,
West Germany would have no hope
for reunification. He warned
against any temptation to negoti-
ate with the Soviet Union, which
has made East Germany a part of
its bloc.
